Possible Reduction in Opioid Use Post Surgery and Pure Form Omega®

Posted on 6/6/2017 by

We are facing a major crisis in North America today regarding the use of opioids for non-medicinal purposes. One of the major gateways into opioid abuse is through the post surgical period. Opioids are commonly prescribed for post surgical pain, both minor and major surgery but the persistence of opioid use is up to 6.5%. It is also known that patients can become dependent on opioid medication in as little as 3 weeks! When the physician tries to stop prescribing, the patient is left to the streets, leading to the explosion of opioid deaths we see today.

Armed with our data from University of Miami, we here at Pure Life Science are confident that post-surgical recovery times in all surgeries can be reduced by 50%. The current, newly started study at MD Anderson in post-operative breast cancer reconstructive surgery will go a long way to prove this assertion. We are expecting the first data to be available in September. If recovery times are less and post-operative pain is less due to the ingenious properties of Pure Form Omega®, it stands to reason the chances of developing an opioid-dependent patient should be greatly reduced.

 

Regardless of even these possibilities, the use of Pure Form Omega® in surgical patients just makes good sense from an overall health perspective. By improving cellular health, it should make all tissue easier for the surgeon to operate on and make the patient more tolerable of the procedure, lowering post-op complications and improved patient outcomes.

 

We envision that Pure Form Omega® will become the standard for pre and post surgical management of patients. Physicians may contact us for a free sampling to patients as a sign of the faith we have in our product. Please contact us at info@pureformomega.com for more information. We would be happy to support any suggested studies using Pure Form Omega® in any patient populations.
